PDF: Unfit for Human Consumption (Alertbox)

PDF: Unfit for Human Consumption (Alertbox): "Users get lost inside PDF files, which are typically big, linear text blobs that are optimized for print and unpleasant to read and navigate online. PDF is good for printing, but that's it. Don't use it for online presentation. "

+1 on that -- a further pet peeve is when sites launch into PDFs without warning (especially inconvenient when you're running a browser full-screen with auto-hide menu/tool bar)
